I think you just did!<quoted text>
Why not extend that offer to people on your side as well?
I think it's funny that you think there are "sides" in this. Do you think I'm on Canton's team (or he is on mine?) You view everything through a black/white partisan world view. You believe that since you hate Obama, I must therefore love him. Here's a surprise for you --- I don't. I think he's been an adequate President, but not a great one.<quoted text>
Why not extend that offer to people on your side as well? What are they for?
I've always been a fiscal conservative. On most issues, I am a utilitarian, seeking "the greatest good for the greatest number." I also have a strong libertarian feelings. I tend to reject candidates who rely upon simple-minded slogans and soundbites, and favor those that offer a more thoughtful approach<quoted text>
On the other hand, when were you ever a conservative?
You assume that others get their information the same way you do. You listen to 10 hours of Rush a week. There is no equivalent 2 hour daily radio show that "liberals" listen to.<quoted text>
And how is the "man on the radio" any different than what liberals train people like Canton to believe?
Yes. It is frequently used by racists, usually in the act of denying their racism.<quoted text>
Have you ever seen the word "racist" used so often by those not brainwashed to say it?
No, that's a simple-minded idea that Ronald Reagan was very successful in promoting. Do you think that Dwight Eisenhower shared that view? Would the US be better without the interstate highway system? Government can enhance our life, as well as burden it.<quoted text>
The conservative belief is the less government in our lives the better.
So, you believe that life is a zero-sum game? I believe in noblesse oblige. Those of us that were fortunate to succeed in life need to look out for the less fortunate.<quoted text>
Conservatives believe that the way to get ahead is to leave others behind. After all, if everybody moves ahead the same distance at the same time, nobody gets ahead.
